New pouch alert.  The Daka:

Magpul-LogoMagpul calls it “the toughest pouch in the world”.  A bold claim which I seriously hope fathers several dozen fan made YouTube videos with all sorts of shenanigans.

Made in the USA from reinforced polymer fabric with an anti slip texture, welded construction, water repellent zipper, 550 paracord tab on the zipper etc.. Wooooooo. I hope my girlfriend doesn’t read that it has a carabiner attachment point. I was just making fun of her janitor-esque keychain bundle held together by a carabiner the other day. It was perfect timing that some lesbians in the movie “Sisters” (Tina Fey and Amy Poehler) we watched around the same time cracked a carabiner joke. The movie actually was pretty funny, just don’t watch the trailer if you don’t want most of the good jokes to be spoiled.

The pouch comes in three different sizes and ranges in price from $17 – $30.  Looks great for travel!  Now if only they could make tough travel size liquid bottles that wouldn’t explode face wash, shampoo and conditioner (yes I use conditioner, I’m not a savage) all over my belongings, I’d be set.

Looks good to me:

travis-haley-magpul-dynamics-CEOI own a GEN1 UBR and really like it.  Yes it’s incredibly heavy, but you could also run it over with a tank and it would probably be fine.  Looks like they reduced the weight by 20% for this new version, so that’s cool.  Like we operators say “Ounces equal pounds, and pounds equal pain bro” ;).  Reducing the cost by 25% down to $200 is always nice too.  Definitely not as affordable as most of their other stocks, but trust me if this GEN2 is anything like the GEN1 (which it looks to be), then it’s worth every penny.  Protip: The trap door is perfect for snacks.

Magpul’s new site is breathtaking.  Even if you’re not in the market for anything gun related, just click the link to breeze through and marvel at its greatness.

AK Operator Union keeping it thorough:

TIER -18 operators don’t use eye protection, apparently even when they’re trying to make a magazine or rifle catastrophically fail.  Oh well, I’m not the one whose going to have to learn braille.

AK-47-Kool-AidI like how these are real drop tests.  This guy gives zero shits about the cosmetics of his AK or his mag.

5:29 – BULLSHIT AK!  They aren’t supposed to fail.  :P

Thoughts?  Is eye pro for chumps?

Full glove retard over at Magpul. Here’s a promo for the newest; the breach glove:

magpul-glovesGranted all the gloves look awesome, and they all are designed for a specific purpose.  Who know the glove industry was so hot right now?  I clearly didn’t.

I still think the flight gloves I blogged about initially, are the ones I’m most interested in.

I’m waiting for a new glove every day next week, for even the most niche hobbies and interests.  Oh you’re a DJ who plays Dungeons & Dragons and suffers from multiple sided die palm abrasions, and record groove index and pointer finger trauma?  Magpul has you covered with the new DJDD glove *coming soon*.

Here are all the gloves they offer currently for those of you looking to pick some up.

That new new:

magpul-glovesWOOOOO that two-tone with olive colorway is la flamez.  Very low-key with the tonal branding. Wow, I like that a lot.  Touchscreen capable fingers too!  I feel like my memes would reach a whole other level if I was firing them off into cyberspace while wearing these gloves.

Magpul definitely didn’t need a fighter jet to sell everyone on these gloves, but I hope they know the effort is appreciated.  PRO TIP: Just to let you guys know, when you’re being a disgusting human eating Cheetos and Dew all day, and for comic relief you decide you want to light your farts; this NOMEX material wont catch fire.  #MagpulCares

$60 at Magpul, coming “soon”.  Just think of how sexy you’ll look wearing your new Magpul belt, and these gloves.

Magpul is the plug:

Magpul-Tight-Pants-Tight-GroupingsMagpul is outchea fusing polymer to leather #NevaBinDoneBefo’. The old fat white guys are going to love this shit. Eddie Bauer and Tommy Bahama shirts are going to be so tucked this Fall/Winter 2015. Regarding the belt… “Look at that subtle coloring. The tasteful thickness.”. “Oh my God. It even has a Magpul logo.”

Poking fun aside, there’s really not too much you can do to revolutionize belts. With all Magpul’s R&D capabilities I would have liked to see them invent a new low profile buckle, rather than using a $2 one I could pick up at Tandy leather. Since the beginning my motto has always been – ask not what you can do for Magpul, but what Magpul can do for you. Roll call; who’s with me?
